Kann Design: craftsmanship serving exceptional interiors

The craftsmen of the Kann Design workshop combine their know-how to produce custom-made furniture and modules. Achievements whose noble materials are intended to embellish or revive interiors.

Part of the activity of the Kann Design collective consists in producing tailor-made furniture, from Lebanon, for interior design projects. Founded in 1958 in Beit Chabab in the north of Beirut, by the father of Houssam Kanaan (founder of Kann Design), the workshop brings together independent craftsmen: cabinetmakers, welders, upholsterers, painters and pole-and-line operators work together with interior designers. to carry out projects such as the Clover Gordes restaurant or the Chess Hotel.

The Clover Gordes

To create this restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Jean-François Piège, Kann Design has joined forces with the Notoire agency and offers a marriage between Parisian inspiration and a country house in the Luberon.

At the request of the Drôme chef, the restaurant takes the simple and authentic essence of Clover, located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris: Kann Design takes over the leather benches, the marble tables, the bistro chairs and adds a dresser, a room. unique and central to the restaurant.

These pieces are linked to the walls tinted with a soft green and are reminiscent of olive groves, rosemary or even savory, bringing a note of sweetness to the room. In the shade of the pergola, in the heart of the Bastide de Gordes, rattan armchairs are enhanced with mismatched patterns, between the pots of olive trees and lavender, as if we had just set a table in the garden. Cutlery and crockery have been found piece by piece to reinforce the authenticity of the place.

The 4-star hotel The Chess comes to life thanks to the collaboration of Kann Design with the architect Pauline D’Hoop. The Lebanese workshop produces a set of tailor-made furniture and modules that bring warmth and personality to the hotel in the Opéra district, in Paris.

Cane still dominates these creations: it is found on the headboards of the 50 rooms, the benches, certain walls and the mirrors in the lobby.

Marble tables complete the bar dominated by leather and brass, while rattan and corduroy bring elegance and originality.
